Favre exits the injury report

A week after showing up on the injury report with three different conditions — foot, knee, and ankle — Vikings quarterback Brett Favre apparently has visited with E.T., Mr. Miyagi, and/or Ernest Angley.

Favre’s name does not appear anywhere on the first Week Six injury report.

As previously mentioned by Rosenthal, receiver Percy Harvin sat out, due to a shoulder injury.

Limited participants included defensive end Ray Edwards (hamstring), guard Steve Hutchinson
(back), tackle Phil Loadholt (ankle), receiver Darius Reynaud (hamstring), and running back Fahu Tahi (ankle).

Cedric Griffin (hand) was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.

For the Ravens, tackle Jared Gaither (neck), linebacker Jarret Johnson (shoulder), and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (back)
missed practice.  Tight end Edgar Jones (hamstring) participated on a limited basis.

The 3-2 Ravens play the 5-0 Vikings at the Metrodome on Sunday.

    I don’t know who is goofier,you or us. I don’t care what anyone says, you a funny dude lawyer man.

  2. Favre will be fine if they can keep putting TJack in the game earlier and earlier each week. Harvin should try to play, because the Ravens pass defense is atrocious and the Ravens better hope Gaither can make it, or else Flacco should make dinner plans with Jared Allen and cover the bill.
    On a side note, thebootguy, I care.

  3. All the talking you have done in the past month about Favre, this is the best you can do this entire week?
    I guess Rush helped you with hits and you didn’t have to rely on Vikings/Packers fans !

  4. Ravens win this game easy as the Vikings will finally play an NFL opponent.
    Vikings are #13 overall on offense and #19 overall on defense. Not exactly stats of a 5-0 football team. What does that tell you? They haven’t played anybody. They will be 5-3 in no time.

  5. we should admit that farve really good this season. in fact, i m tired of his news. But he’s on the headline since he 5 wins. “Old birds is not to be catched with chaff.” lets await and see week 6.

  6. florio just knows that people who google “Favre” will come here to read this non-story bs.. I love this site, but this year it’s become a “what can i do to get more hits to prove to NBC they made a good decision” kinda place…
    lame..

  7. NFLJunkie,
    And who has Baltimore played? Every time they played a real team they’ve gotten beat. Or do you count the Browns, KC, and the usual early season under performing Chargers top notch wins? Baltimore is overrated.

  8. I love that the Vikings are 5-0. All these people that want them to fail so bad are having to resort to yardage rankings for offense and defense to “prove” how right they were all along. How pathetic.
    Vikings have played 5 games and won 4 of them easily (as far as NFL goes). They don’t make the schedule. I agree that Baltimore and Pittsburgh are better than the teams we have already played. But it isn’t like they are unbeatable. Look at their records.
    And now Brett is healthy too! Watch out.

  9. 5-0 sure makes a difference. Notice how the “Childress is on the hot seat” stories and the “fire Childress now” posts have both dropped to zero? Of course, those sentiments are still there. No one seems willing to give Childress and the Vikings organization credit for building a solid team with character and veteran leadership. I admit that I wanted Childress fired after his first year, but he has changed my mind. He, the owners, and team management clearly had a long-term plan to turn around an organization that had become disfunctional under the previous owner. If no one else will say it, I hope he gets a contract extension.

  10. @NFLJunkie – You are entitled to your opinion. Too bad it’s retarded though. Keep your day job,analyst not in your future.

  11. Childress still needs a playoff win or two this year.
    Wilf , when asked recently was non commital on an extension.
    He has improved every year he’s been there:
    took over 6-10
    8-8
    10-6……this year, who knows? I do like what I an seeing.
    Yet we get to hear about what a great coach Mumbles is in GB.
    He’s still teaching “technique” during week5?
    It’s going to be a long season. Pack loses to the Lions this week.

  12. The Percy Harvin (story of an NFL bust) continues:
    1) 02/22/2009 – Arrives at the NFL combine on drugs with full knowledge and prior warning he would be tested for drug abuse. Tests positive for marijuanna. Placed in NFL’s substance abuse program. The NFL is now spending extra resources monitoring the player.
    2) 5/1/2009 – missed rookie practice do to severe dehydration, cause unknown, called in sick.
    3) 06/29/2009 – Arrives at the NFL required rookie symposium and then tells medical personnel he is too ill to participate and is sent home.
    4) 06/30/09 – Harvin ordered to attend the 2010 rookie symposium. Like the kid that flunked first grade Percy has to attend next year.
    5) 07/31/09 – Harvin fails to report to Training Camp on time.
    6) 08/04/09 – Harvin’s contract with the Vikings is disapproved by the NFL for rules violations.
    7) 08/14/09 – Harvin is “hurt” (shoulder) and misses his first game, the preseason opener. [/b]
    8) 09/24/09 – Harvin misses practices again with a mystery illness that the vikings refuse to discuss. No one will say if the illness coincides with the scheduled extra drug testing he is required to undergo due to his prior failed test.
    9) 10/14/09 – Harvin misses practice again. Speculation by Judd Zugland is a shoulder injury but no one really knows for sure and the vikings have said nothing officially.

  13. @BobNelson –
    Thanks for keeping track of our stud rookie. Guess when your team sucks you have the time. Keep up the good work!

  14. Everyone who is sipping the purple Kool Aid, just wait and see. If you think this team is any different than the last few years is mistaken.
    Other than the SF miracle win and the GB game, Favre has been very average to say the least. Nobody wants to talk about his below average games against Cleveland and Detroit? Or his pedestrian game against the Rams?
    Bottom line is that Favre has won them all of ONE game that the other QB’s on the roster wouldn’t have won for them, and that’s the SF game.
    This team is no different than the team who lost to Philly in the playoffs last year. Their record is better because of their schedule setup this year. They will be 5-3 within a few weeks…..watch.
    I agree with some of you though. Baltimore is their most winnable game over the next few weeks. They aren’t winning in Pittsburgh and GB is going to get revenge on them at home.
    What purple Kool Aid drinkers also don’t talk about is how Rodgers shredded the Vikings secondary. If not for those two turnovers, that game would have turned out different. That won’t happen in GB. And no, I’m not a GB fan.

  15. @ Ol’ Bobby Boy
    Bust?! Do you even watch football? Or do you just stick with off-seasons stories, hopes and dreams?

  16. As usual, Bob Nelson is full of it. It was revealed that Harvin suffers from serious migraines. That probably accounts for his “mystery” illnesses. He suffered a shoulder injury during the Rams game, but still returned to play. It was reported in the Strib that he was still feeling the effects during the week. As is common in the NFL, teams don’t elaborate on injuries. Harvin is a serious contender for rookie of the year. Bob Nelson is a bitter old Packer fan, light-headed from the fumes of stale beer left in the cans strewn about his hovel.

    yep Bob, he smoked pot, I willing to bet that a significant amount of players on the Packers do too. Just don’t get caught.
    Migraines were the cause of the last ” hush-hush”
    you know that.
    once again, you look like a fool. As always, as sure as death and taxes.
    Bob :
    Vikes 5-0
    Pack 2-2
    2.5 out already and only 5 games in…lol
    Favre with just 2 ints.
    Poor disilliusoned Packer fan , you are an asshat, you were from the word go.
    Pack loses by 6 to the Lions, hopefully you disappear then.

    ALL OF THIS MEANS NOTHING!
    (that was in caps for a reason)

  19. It would be nice for the Vikes if Ngata didn’t play.
    Interesting string on Harvin; however, if you want to compare him to the first round pick from Battling Bob’s team, how about this — BJ Raji 4 tackles to date this season and can’t even beat out codine drinking, pot smoking, lard ass John Jolly to get on the field to support an already mediocre defense. Meanwhile, Harvin has 18 catches, 233 yds, 2 TDs and a boatload of return yards playing a WR slot position that supposedly takes 2 years to learn.

  20. not only that purple he line up at all THREE wr positions.
    Idiot fans like this would rather ATTEMPT to degrade our team, then concentrate on the sorry state of affairs on their team.
    I can’t wait til the Lions beat them this week-end.

  21. CanadianVikingFan:
    We all agree Bob is an idiot, but we want to goad him into responding. He tucks his curly tail between his legs and runs to the nearest bar to talk about how great the Packers are/were.

  22. “BJ Raji 4 tackles to date this season and can’t even beat out codine drinking, pot smoking, lard ass John Jolly to get on the field to support an already mediocre defense.”
    Mediocre defense? Are you talking about the same defense that has 7 interceptions this season and stopped Adrian Peterson?
    and didn’t Jared Allen get caught drunk driving not once, not twice but three times? Yeah that’s what I thought. and Johnny Jolly isn’t the lard ass, it’s that fatty Pat Williams, the one who looks like he ate himself.

  23. Stopped Adrain Peterson? yeah, that was brilliant!
    Favre had 272 yards and 3 tds and wasn’t even so much as sneezed on in that game!
    Yeah, that meiocre defense!!
    Jared Allen, yep he had TWO dwi’s,,,, while with KANSAS CITY.
    He’s kept his nose clean for going on 3 years now.
    Your lard ass is bigger than our lard ass!!!
    Jesus, grow up man!

  24. Bob-Can’t bellieve you brought out that crap about Harvin — you had to see the comparisons to our number one pick coming. So far I’d say Raji has been a dissappointment at best. AND, he’s got a pretty good love of the weed himself.
    The game this weekend will pretty much sum up our season and coaching staff. If we don’t absloutely blow Detroit & Cleveland out of the water–it’s going to be along season. So far we every team we have played has had one of their best games. 4 INT’s against Chicago and they were still in it. These next 2 games are huge.

  25. The fact of the matter is the Vikes have only beat one quality opponent. The Packers.
    The real test is now with the Ravens, Steelers, Packers onh the road and Bears after the Bye Week I think. Those are playoff teams.
    Not the Browns, Lions, Niners, or Rams

  26. A Maverick–you feeling OK? Certainly do appreciate the compliment & I like to think we are a qulity opponent. We better get a lot of things figured out pretty quickly though.
    Again, thank you.

  27. Yeah Bob, a Packer backer should really rip on Minny’s 1st round picks. Let’s look at GB’s in the TT era… BJ Raji, Justin Harrell, AJ Hawk. Matthews may not be a bust, but isn’t very impressive either. Then there is the 8-12, 5 sacks a game stat machine of a QB who appears to have separation anxiety with the ball.
    And maverick, not splitting hairs here, but the 49ers appear to be playoff bound, even if it is by default for winning the West. And before that thrashing by the Falcons, the 9ers were considered a solid team.

  28. 49ers are more of a quality opponent than GB.
    No offense rulz, you are one of the good ones.
    Maybe Tauscher and Clifton will spark them a lil…who knows.
    For your sake, i hope they start playing better…but not until they are out of shouting distance for catching the Vikes….;)

  29. NFL junkie, this is not the same team as a year ago, this years team if you hadn’t noticed, has a Quarterback and a very good one at that! This team is getting better with each game and gaining more confidence in each other as each week goes by. You talk about how it would have been different if it weren’t for the 2 turnovers in the greenbay game, did you forget about that the vikings also gave up a td on the turnover by AP. Turnovers are a part of the game, and last I checked, the vikes are leading in takeaways. As for favre being an average QB, I seem to recall him being offensive player of the week recently. If you think this is the same team as a yr. ago, your not paying close enough attention. The vikings will win 2 out of the next 3 games, if not all three!
